  • Think it was £385.this year.

  • i think its £375 with a £22,.50 booking fee...........so nearly enough change from £400 for a pint

    You will love it, have you ordered your kit yet? When we finally get round to that pint I will give you run down of the bike course.

    I have an agreement with Mrs SA that IF when we get back from Florida there are still entries available, I can enter

    And when are you in Florida?

    Back from Florida 6th November after Mrs SA has smashed IM Florida

    So a good chance that you'll be entering then!

    IM Florida sounds great image

     

  • Really pleased that like a numpty I forgot to pre register, sure it won't sell out before tomorrow though.

  • I'm in.Entered yesterday night, now I just need to figure out how not to drown on the swim and practice cycling up hills. 

    I have a year to practice anyway so all is well.

  • I'm in image, now where are those hills image

     

  • I'm in .... yippee!image

  • I'm in too. Need to work on my cycling.
  • I've just entered this as well. I love easy races.

    But I love tough ones more.

  • going to be a good event againimage

  • Though I was going to have to leave it next year and aim for the future. Then watched the live feed on Sunday and really wanted to be there. Thought about it more and don't want to risk missing the current venue if it does change in the future. So I've applied for a Macmillan place for next year to raise some cash whilst I suffer!

  • Yup, I'm in too image.

  • Hoooray! Joddly image

    See you in 3 weeksimage  Hope all good  xx

  • When its raining on the bike course.... just think of challenge barcellona instead image

    You had the option but chose grwy skies over blue

     

    Can we start a wales 2015 list coz i wamt to go back image

  • I am watching very VERY carefully.

    Sept 14th.

    I may have to go out on a limb and enter, with the small risk of a date clash.
    How to tell the wife?

  • Blisters - get her to watch TV early tomorrow morning, after seeing the footage she'll be encouraging to enter !

  • Just filled in the Macmillan application. How to tell the wife?! image

  • After getting clearance from the wife and thinking long and hard on whether to do this or hold out and see what happens regarding Challenge Henley 2014; which is just down the road, I finally went this way and registered.

    Already excited, and there's still nearly 12 months to go!

  • I've just had my email from Macmillan. I'm IN!!!! image

  • Ah quiet night shifts...Thought I'd skim through and have a go at creating a list, here goes....image

  • should be fun! I'm probably going there in April to get some practice in.

  • Trying to get a bit of interest in Bala as a pre summer Ironman warm up, the more the merrier.

  • Bala is a fab event .... get yer entries in image

  • This looks like as good a place as any to say HI.

     

    I am doing the IM wales 2014, just got the word from Macmillian last week. Total Newbie here so look out for some daft questions.

     

     

  • Changed the gearing on my road bike this week, now on a 11 - 30 image, time to get some hill training in over the winter, also going to remove the clip on bars I think. Going to see how this feels before I decide in the spring wether to do the same to the TT bike and use that for Wales, or stick to the road bike. What others thoughts TT bike or Road bike? Gearing ratios anyone?
